The new Bathurst Steet

Photos by Barry Wallace
At present, vehicular traffic on Bathurst Street (the eastern boundary of King Township) ends 500 metres north of the Morning Sideroad.   Walk another 500 metres or so and you will find yourself at the spot pictured above.   Bathurst Street has been closed at this spot for several decades.
Many locals over the years called this section of Bathurst Street (which plunges down to the Holland Marsh) the 'devil's elbow'.   Driving it was always a challenge at the best of times.   It will probably be early 2015 before Bathurst Street is widened and pushed up and over the moraine to make Bathurst Street a through road. Below is a view south on Bathurst Street from the Graham Sideroad, west of Holland Landing.   The new roadbed can be seen heading up over part of the Oak Ridges Moraine.
